The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
The Rev. Jeremiah Jewett House is located overlooking the Sheepscot River in Head Tide, Maine. It is a Federal style house with a long attached carriage shed. The Greek Revival style door surround is likely an alteration from the mid-19th century.
Head Tide is a historic mill village that retains more than a dozen period homes, shops, and an 1838 church, surrounding the site of a dam that powered grist, carding, and wood-working mills for almost two centuries. Floods and fires removed all the wood mill buildings before 1950, leaving a beautiful and peaceful village tucked away in a quiet corner of Lincoln County.
Federal is one of 25 styles and types illustrated and described in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
